A new vision of child care
INNTRA was founded by Virginie Morel (Child Rights Advocate & Public Health Researcher) in collaboration with Felicity Pocklington (Anthropologist and Senior Public Health Expert), and Mrs. Laetitia de Schoutheete (Psychologist and Trauma Specialist) to offer an effective answer to address children and adolescents’ emotional, psychological and physical distress in various settings.
With years of experience in various fields relating to child protection and children health, we are convinced that an effective approach to children psycho-social care must be both scientific and holistic in nature. Our programs stem from global empiric research and are adaptable in order to fit each life context worldwide. Our approach, based on compassion and respect, offers measurable results and is always developed in close collaboration with local partners within the community.
About the Founder
Coherence Cardiaque, Mindfulness, Reiki, Neuro Gym, Psychotraumatologie de l’exil,
Virginie discovered very early a passion coaching and accompanying young people. Her studies logically led her to the fields of education, psychology, and child protection, which gave her the opportunity to live, study and work in several countries in the private sector, at the World Health Organization and in the non-profit sector as a teacher, counsellor, researcher and educator specializing in child psycho-traumatology.
After a serious work accident, Virginie discovered the EMDR therapy method and became very interested in its application in a multidisciplinary program designed to help underprivileged youth who had suffered from severe physical, emotional or sexual trauma and she created her first organization, INNTRA–Innovative Trauma Relief Access in 2018, in Geneva.
Over the past 2 years, witnessing the aftermaths of the pandemic as well as the uncertain global context, she observed that young people who had not necessarily experienced any traumatic episode or type of abuse were also experiencing heavy suffering which often times went unnoticed and often remained misunderstood. She decided to create her second organization INNTRAWellbeing, in 2021, in collaboration with Dr. Silke Reiter-Karam, in order to offer a playful, educational and practical alternative for all children and parents desiring to feel better equipped emotionally to deal more harmoniously with life’s events and challenges!
